Will Amber Heard escape to her secret desert hideout home? During her trial against Johnny Depp, she skipped glamorous LA mansions for a sleepy Yucca Valley, California property – take a peek inside
Here’s what you need to know about her secret hideaway from Hollywood.
Yucca Valley is a town with a population of around 20,000, located in San Bernardino County. The closest landmark is the Joshua Tree National Park – famous for the U2 album of the same name.
Although the house was bought in 2019, Dirt.com reported that Heard only recently moved in. The New York Post has speculated that Heard has used the house as a sanctuary to get away from all the media attention she has faced during the defamation trial.
A source also reportedly told British media that Heard loves the desert and has used it as a getaway.
The home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and is on 24,300 square metres of land. Inside there is an open-plan kitchen, a vaulted ceiling in the dining area, and floor-to-ceiling windows, which provide views of the desert surroundings.
The main bedroom has a spa-style tub allowing for luxurious bathing. The house also has a large yard, a garage that can fit up to five cars and has wood finishings typical of a desert home.
The property has a bridge that is more than 34 metres long, allowing people to cross a dried-up creek and access an elevated structure on top of a hill. The house has low-E aluminium windows to keep it cool during the soaring summer heat.
The house also has solid iron front doors and a temperature control valve in the shower and bathtubs.
